KEEPING THE CUBS COOL
We like it when our hometown baseball teams are hot in the standings—but not in the dugout. How do the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs keep cool during the sweltering heat of summer? We caught up with the Cubs’ team nutritionist, Dawn Jackson Blatner to score a recipe that is a big hit in the clubhouse. Now you can be “Cubs Cool” with Watermelon Electrolyte Pops.
There are three things your body needs to keep muscles going strong throughout a workout: hydration, carbohydrates and sodium. Water keeps our whole body working efficiently and without enough of it we are more likely to get injured and feel fatigued. Carbs are the main fuel source your muscles burn through and sodium is the key electrolyte lost in sweat, so it’s important to replace them.
